We had a lousy year, but our 4 losses other than Michigan State were very close too (total of 11 points). So honestly that's just dumb to say. Losing 7 games by less than a TD would be an incredible stroke of bad luck.

I'm sure he's a great guy and was a good coach a decade ago, but it really would be nice if Fred Jackson left. I know every indication is that he doesn't intend to retire, but we could use someone who, you know, develops running backs.

Just a response to him saying A is easier to win than F when Brazil is a stone cold lock to win A. But obviously Brazil, Spain, Argentina, and Germany are teams that merely drawing would be a dream result.

Our chances for winning A would have been 0% just so we're clear.

Maybe 7-6 would at least force Hoke's hand with Borges and Funk. Also can Fred Jackson retire already? He hasn't developed a running back since Chris Perry.

Young? On D all but one safety spot and 3 tech will be seniors or very experienced juniors. We return a 5th year QB. The youth excuses are wearing thin.

Best game on now is Ohio State-Marquette hoops. Flip over to Fox to get a first impression of the Buckeye basketball team.

Things will be better next year might be Michigan's rallying cry the past decade.

I think the implication with Stanford is vastly superior OL coaching. The question is how much is coaching and how much is our players being bad. If our players are being poorly coached or just soft, it really would only take one year for a solid improvement with a better coach. Remember the leap our D made from 2010 to 2011 with Mattison?

The worst thing that could have happened for us this season was the Indiana game. Playing that JV high school defense got Borges smug about his offense again.

Obviously they can. The key is for coaches to not be completely stubborn in their schemes/gameplanning. Unfortunately, we had RR forcing DCs to run a system they were unfamiliar with and Hoke/Borges trying to play Manball when our team has sucked at it for 3 years.

This why we can't have nice things. I am beyond sick of Seven nation Army and sometimes the music annoys me, but if Michigan wants to be a modern football power... Michigan is going to do these things.

Considering the clocks move back an hour on November 3rd it probably won't be all that dark until the end of the game.

|10 weeks 5 days ago||Michigan football was started||
Michigan football was started by students. Administration hated the sport. People like Yost valued the students as the very most important group. Nowadays in the monetized, business-focused college football landscape people like Dave Brand'n have forgotten this.

I couldn't sell my ticket for today. Market value was probably about $10. Every student knew this was coming.

I've been unable to go to games thus far, but based on the mess it all sounds like, I would expect a pretty weak showing Saturday against Akron. I can't sell my ticket even for $30 and a lot of folks are very frustrated with the new system.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||After the Marlins Park||
After the Marlins Park fiasco, the climate in south Florida is very hostile towards public funding for stadiums. Also, all the hype about new stadiums and major events bringing money to cities is way overblown. There is little proof of this, and recent examples mostly show a somewhat negative effect.

I liked the 30 yard run, but that was really the line creating a huge hole. His other 10 carries went for only 28 yards. Sample size is too small, we can't really compare the two until we're heading into B1G play with four games of carries.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||Football and beer go together||
Football and beer go together like America and football. Y'all might judge students for our party-style tailgating but it is a factor in rowdiness whether you'll admit it or not. Plus, all those kids in the front third were standing around for a couple hours in the heat.

Unpopular opinion, but as a senior who couldn't go, I loathed seeing all the freshmen up front on tv.

Universally panned by friends of mine who got there at varying times. Apparently upper sections got extremely tight and too few were allowed into lower bowl.

|14 weeks 4 days ago||Dead horse||
Has been beaten. Seniors (like me) are annoyed (justifiably in my opinion). Smug younger kids (who think their willingness to give up extra hours makes them better fans) will stand around for hours on gameday (possibly dampening the fun and excitement of the excellent student gameday experience). Alums will grumble about the same problems of attendence and truancy in the student section. Michigan will still take the field by touching the banner and we'll all still sing the victors together.

Pat Riley has used this with his teams for decades, particularly in game 7s, from the 80s Lakers to the 2012 Heat. No points for originality here

It may be an unpopular opinion, but the savage drubbing at the hands of Dennis Dixon and Oregon the week after The Horror feels even worse to me. Oregon broke the Big House's mystique that day, and it didn't return until Hoke's rainsoaked debut against Western Michigan.
